TRADITIONAL SKILLS for CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS
"I graduated with a BFA in Illustration from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design. But it wasn’t until my early 30’s, when I discovered traditional Classical Realism training, that my representational painting reached a truly professional level.
"I started winning awards and selling my paintings. And I started getting requests to teach.
"I believe it's crucial for all serious art students to learn how to draw and paint from life,without over-reliance on photographs, grids, or external tools, in order to reach their highest artistic potential in any style"
"I have taken workshops all over the world to buff up my skills, but I have never experience the Aha! moments with another teacher the way I have done in Sadie's classes. Sadie is not only exquisitely talented, but able to teach to every level in a way that creates confidence and excitement.
"Sadie's instruction is impeccable. There are no Secrets. Only solid techniques of the masters, clearly communicated by this warm and giving teacher.
"I had dabbled in classes over the years with moderate results and was looking for something with solid technique that was more comprehensive... [Sadie's] curriculum is focused and rigorous and it will train you to really see and understand.
"Sadie and all of her teachers actually TEACH how to draw and paint. This is not your have fun and express yourself art school.... Work hard and you will be rewarded. My skill set has grown by leaps and bounds in 9 months of study. Best art experience in my life.
"I have studied with a number of different artists, and Sadie is by far the most effective I have personally been exposed to.... My artistic abilities expanded significantly from her classes and I recommend them to anyone looking for top-notch education in classical realism.
